Fancyapint? pub awards annual best pub awards

- the pick of the bunch

Each year, around October 19, we celebrate the anniversary of by presenting awards to the best pubs we've visited in the previous twelve months.

Fancyapint?'s annual AwardsThese awards showcase the best pubs in London and are a small thank you to all the people who have worked so hard over the year providing an enjoyable drinking experience for everyone. And our visitors' awards are our way of saying thanks on behalf of our users. Millions of people visit each year to find the best pubs to visit and, from the feedback we get, it is clear what kind of pubs our visitors enjoy.

The Awards

There are five best London pub awards in each of two categories: the reviewers’ awards and the visitors’ awards, with overall winners in each.The reviewers' awards are decided by the review team and are based on the pubs we visited and reviewed over the past twelve months.

The visitors' awards are based on the most popular pubs on These pubs are not just the most popular reviews seen on the site, they have had the most visits arranged to them through and have received the most positive feedback.

There are also a number of special awards made by our reviewers. Not all of our special awards are made every year -  we present them to the pubs that we feel have performed particularly well in the categories of best newcomer, best refurbishment and most improved.

The thirteen awards made this year represent the cream of the 4,500 pubs in our database.

Hall of fame

In 2010 we introduced a hall of fame. Over the last couple of years the reviewers have made a special award to pubs that, in our opinion, have consistently provided excellent levels of service over a long period an deserve a special mention. In these rapidly changing times, it's nice to see some good things remain constant. Visit our Hall of Fame to see this year's and previous years' entrants.
